in january, the woman at the center of the alleged extramarital affair. and we use the word "alleged" very loosely there with cia director david petraeus which led to the resignation from his post on friday. good morning. with us on set, msnbc political analyst, john heilemann. the president on the council on foreign relations, richard haass and author of "foreign policy begins at home: the case for putting america's house in order." and from washington, we've got nbc chief foreign affairs correspondent, andrea mitchell. the great john heilemann also here. >> we also have willie geist. >> the great willie geist also here. >> we did your show. it's a cute little show. >> it's fun, right? it's a good show. >> how's your new life? >> it started nine seconds ago, so i'll let you know. >> your swan song on friday being called by some the greatest swan song since the beatles recording abbey road. >> the "m.a.s.h." finale, i got a lot of that. >> so what's the chances that this paula broadwell, is that her name? >> yes. >> paula broadwell is on "morning joe" the one day that i'm off over the last
petraeus' biographer about the deadly attack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi, libya. let's take a listen. >> i don't know if a lot of you heard this, but the cia an annex had taken a couple prisoner and they think the attack on the consulate was an attempt to get the prisoners back. that's still being vetted. >> where did she hear that? did it come from david petraeus and do we know if her claim was true, the cia was holding captives inside a consular annex in benghazi? >> right, ted. this raises serious issues. she clearly said in the video the information she was sharing on libya and the cia holding prisoners there hadn't been vetted. so that means she is sharing something with -- that she heard with a public audience. that's concerning because they have to ask, what is your source? is the source of all of her information david petraeus? given her extraordinary access to the former director of the cia, it would have been a reasonable assumption. but, again, her access to him was not in any way in an official capacity. though she did tell me she was working with the general on writing a
and whether she inadvertently spilled some of those secrets during her remarks. bill gross joins us live, what's your impression of this situation as it's playing out? >> well, it's certainly a very interesting situation, as you say. there's a joke going around on twitter that the french intelligence director resigned because he doesn't have an affair for six months. so the idea that an extramarital affair in itself would bring down the cia director is very isn't in my mind. there has to be more to the story. my guess is it has to do with internal cia politics. the agency's known to be using intelligence information to settle scores, or it could be related to the benghazi scandal. shannon: well, we know just weeks ago that general petraeus, then-director petraeus, had been on the ground in libya, he was set to testify this week on capitol hill. does the timing raise red flags of the resignation late friday? >> absolutely. clearly, there was some covert action program going on in libya. i think the agency and the obama administration are trying to figure out how to deal with that. it could incl

to congress just days later. martha: doug luzader joins us live with this report from washington. good morning, doug. >> reporter: good morning, guys. at a very basic level this is the store of an affair between general david petraeus and his biographer paula broad well. it gets complicated. there may be national security implication including into the broad investigation into the consulate in benghazi on september 11th. there is no question she would have had prime access to one. key players. she made a couple of public appearances to talk about that. that was at the university of denver, her alma mater last month where she spoke about the benghazi attack. this was came as ci a-team were asking for help but were denied. here is what she said. >> i don't know if a lot of you heard this but the cia annex had taken a couple of libyan militia members prisoner and they think the attack on the consulate was an effort to get the prisoners back. that is still being vetted. >> reporter: that would seemingly contradict what we heard over and over again initially midaway, that the at lack in libya was r
in the economy that hurt people in the middle class. he was using outsourcing. they were using offshoring. they were painting him as the kind of bad guy that led to the economic situation people are in. >> schieffer: it seems to me in the beginning they just made a streamic mistake about ohio. why would you go and campaign against the auto bailout in a place where it worked, where they put people back to work? that seems like an odd way to go about it. i don't think it's the polling in the end that they didn't understand. i mean, that-- why would you use that? that was-- that was the thrust of their message out there. the auto bailout was wrong. >> yeah, well, they thought-- what confused them a little bit is they thought it's about independence in ohio. and we're doing well. they targeted independents, knocked on their doors. these are people who hadn't participated in the primaries of either party, and they were winning with those independents. a senior strategist said to me, fmitt romney loses ohio, i'll give you $1,000 to your favorite charity for every point he wins among independent
and income -- as warren buffett reminds us, the effective tax rates for people on top are pretty low. one out of four profitable corporations in this company are not paying a nickel in taxes, losing over $100 billion a year because corporations and the wealthy people are stashing their money in the cayman long islands. the working people of this country say we have to do deficit reduction but don't cut social security, medicare or medicaid. there are ways to move towards a balanced budget which are fair. >> on the other side, talking about the house and particularly house republican, they view the results of this election a little bit differently. a number of them have suggested that in fact the message of this election in electing a house that is still a gop majority is that they don't want taxes raised on the wealthy. >> well, i think the objective facts disagree with that assertion. the democrats gained two seats in the senate, did better than anyone dreamed. the democrats gained more votes in the house, gained a few seats in the house. president obama won a resounding electoral college vi
congress and soon regarding the deadly aattack on the u.s. consulate in benghazi. petraeus was one of three witnesses on the agenda for that closed senate hearing, which at this point is still scheduled to happen on capitol hill this thursday. either way, congress could collagen petraeus before them even as they question why they were kept in the dark about a month-long fbi inquiry that ended his tenure at the country's top spy agency. >> this thing just came so fast and so hard, and since then it's been like peeling an onion. every day another peel comes off, and you see a whole new dimension to this. my concern has actually escalated over the last few days. >> and questions also remain about why the president and the white house were not notified about the scandal surrounding petraeus until late last week. republican congressman eric cantor says he was notified back in october after being contacted by an fbi employee concerned that sensitive information may have been compromised. >> once the fbi realized it was investigating the director of the cia or the cia director came one their focus
